I just got my first hand gun and plan on taking a basic training class but is there any good books or reading material I should check out to get me on my way? I don't come from a long line of marksmen so I'm really starting from scratch. Any thoughts?

Good Luck

The instruction manual and ranges...often
I say the manual becasue you should know everything about your weapons that you own. The range because there is no use paying alot of money for shooting classes that you can do with cheap ammo and a firing range. Most ranges in the midwest that i have been to are friendly and have no problems giving you simple tips and some help. True gun fans want other to be as skillful and safe as they are. Good Luck

Thanks

That's been the plan so far. I've put about 700 rounds through the thing in the last month and love going to the range but I worry about learning bad habits.
